Peter Sarstedt

Peter Sarstedt Brief Biography

Peter Eardley Sarstedt (10 December 1941 - 8 January 2017), briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was an English singer, instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive "Robin" Sarstedt.

Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the single "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", set to a European style faux-waltz tune, which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969 and won the Ivor Novello Award along with "Space Oddity" by David Bowie. Sarstedt remained a one-hit wonder, despite having released numerous successful albums and singles beginning from the late 1960s and releasing two singles a year from 1967 until 1987, with the popular track "Frozen Orange Juice" and the novelty song "Take off Your Clothes" entering the top ten.
